    1. Enjoyed this from a historical perspective. It was interesting to see how some aspects of travel, for instance people's wanderlust, have not changed much over the decades while in other areas the world is a very different place. I am thinking here particularly in terms of what countries are 'safe' to visit. Back in the early 1970s, Vietnam was off limits while visiting Afghanistan was not uncommon among the young travel set. These days, the situation has flipped with plenty of people going to Vi [...]


    2. I started this last year - 2014 - while traveling through southeast Asia, and finally finish it this year - 2015 - while traveling throughout India. Originally published in 1973, this 42 year old travel book still grabbed my attention, not that the prices, hotels, or restaurants listed are likely there anymore.Still - he captures the essence of each country, it's culture, and the experience it was (is?) to travel there on the cheap. This is the first Lonely Planet Guide. Yup, this is how it all [...]


    3. What a great idea, to provide us the first ever lonely planet as a free ebook! i really honor the gesture. It also is a historical document of some sort ^^ i must admit i did not read through it, since this route does not really interet me. I read the preface and flipped a bit through the pages. It looks like a guide who was written with a lot of knowledge and honesty, and that is nice. Of course it is rather dry, it´s just typed info without anything fancy. that is understandable, since it was [...]


    4. I really enjoyed this read, a trip back in time. When Tony and Maureen arrived in Australia, I was not yet 1. My parents had done a similar trip a few years earlier. Just fantastic to read terms no longer used - 'freak' appeared frequently. To see you could get from Darwin to Istanbul for about $239 in travel costs (including short flights when no other option). To glimpse overland travel before it became really trendy, mainstream - and easy. To hear of borders that were open just a few hours a [...]


    5. la prima lonely planet- interamente dedicata ai viaggi in asia e pubblicata nel 1973. inevitabilmente datata eppure piacevolissima da leggere, con un filo di tristezza pensando a com'è cambiato (non certo in meglio) il mondo- basta pensare ai buddha di bamiyan, distrutti dai talebani o alla devastazione portata dal terremoto in nepal. non mancano le parti dedicate a droghe, mercato nero e piccoli trucchi per ottenere i visti; una lettura gradevolmente vintage per appassionati dell'asia.


    6. Good travel tips for 1970!outdated and with some despective comments to all south east asian countries, if you want some useful tips, try something else


    7. It is so helpful even this book was published long time ago. Because of Lonely Planet I got my international Student ID. YAY !! :D
